AGP transfer mechanism disabled Help !!



Hi All,
I was hoping to get some help from all you Gurus out there.
I have a Radeon 8500 with 64mb.
I run WIN XP pro.

I cannot run most games. Diablo 2 for example comes back with an error that says. Error 22 unable to initialise direct draw.

When I looked at dxdiag it has hardware acceleration not available for direct draw.
When I looked using Powerstrip I saw that AGP transfer mechanism was disabled.

I desperately need help to enable AGP transfer mechanism.
Please help

Thanks in advance


it also says that on mine too...

but everything works great . dont worry about that

it must be something else update all your drivers

I myself could not run Diablo2; it reported no supported graphics.

The fix is use XP drivers for your graphics cards and then load the game- after you played and loaded atleast 1 time successfully; reboot.

Then you may update to any driver version you wish :)

hope this works...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
